I know I basically covered this before with the lyric video, but every new AFI video is a must-watch really. This one’s a suitabley moody affair, complete with lots of dark eye contact, drawn faces and screaming from mr Davey Havok himself. If you’re a fan, you’ll probably love this already. If you’re not, you clearly haven’t listened to them enough.
This song takes me back a few years. Aside from a brief, ill-advised performance on Reading’s main stage at an unsuitably early time, Chicago’s Alkaline Trio have never disappointed me.
Known for catchy snippets of punk rock with their trademark dark lyrics, (this one starts with ‘I dragged this lake, looking for corpses’), ‘Private Eye’ is from the trio’s third album, ‘From Here To Infirmary’, released in 2001.
What are they up to now?
The band recorded their ninth album in October last year, due later this year. Frontman Matt Skiba has released two solo albums, ‘Demos’ and ‘Babylon’, recorded with The Sekrets, featuring My Chemical Romance drummer Jarrod Alexander and AFI bassiest Hunter Burgan.
